When cleaning using this 313A steamer, the main agent of your cleaning is the steam that comes out. In order to save steam whilst cleaning avoid lifting the steam cleaner above the ground/floor whilst steam is coming out. A lot of steam will escape out this way and quickly empty your tank with water supply which is heated into steam. Still on steam this is remarkably one of the hottest steamers on the market. It can get as hot as 220 degrees which makes us believe that it can sanitize your floors. Some manufacturers claim that their steam cleaners sanitize however we often doubt this due to the "lukewarm" steam produced by these steamers.
Due to the water tank size of this Eureka steam cleaner 313A, it is one of the longest lasting steam cleaners. With a full tank of 20 oz. we can confirm that you can clean for more than 20 minutes without need for refilling. Most steam cleaners go only as far as 15 minutes. This can introduce an accumulative downtime if you have say the whole house to clean.
In terms of safety, this Eureka steam cleaner 313A has a warning red light that is lit when your tank is in need of refilling. Absolutely no chemical is to be used with this steamer. It is designed for water only. Chemicals may corrode the parts inside the steam including the water tank.
